Asta Dilytė, PhD student of Institute of Social Welfare of Lithuanian Social Research Centre, participated at the International Scientific Conference on "Education Policy in Cultural Contexts: Transmission and/or Transformation" held on November 7-8th, 2019 in Vilnius, Lithuania. A.Dilytė presented her research called "Establishment of an All-day school in Lithuania: an institutional analysis". Research was carried out with co-authors - Assoc. dr. Daiva Skučienė (LSRC) and Assoc. dr. Eugenijus Dunajevas (Vilnius University). The purpose of this research was to analyze the institutional options for setting up an All-day school following John Elster’s (2000) action model. The results of the survey showed that there is an institutional capacity to set up an All-day school in Lithuania, but there is a high concentration of power.
